My New Moon in Taurus Mantra
“I Release all thoughts (Mercury) that block (Saturn) me from making my wishes (New Moon) a reality (Taurus)
If you follow me on Twitter you know I always encourage you to write down your new moon wishes once a month. I love the period of the New Moon, I like beginnings I have a natal Aries Moon and often feel I am on a journey of searching for newness. I like to try new things, see new places….the New Moon is a period of planting seeds that ideally reach fruition by the time of the Full Moon when the moon is at its brightest and fullest. I usually don’t post about the New Moon every month but several people seem particularly worried about this New Moon. The New Moon in earth sign of Taurus occurs on May 18th so the Sun and Moon will conjoin in the sign of the bull in 26 degrees (during a New Moon the Sun and Moon are always in the same sign) this New Moon forms an out of sign conjunction with Mars (meaning you want to take action) but perhaps you feel restricted or immobile because this New Moon is opposite Saturn and occurring on the same day that Mercury is stationary, or apparently has stopped before heading into retrograde.
Retrograde periods in itself are always about RE-doing, RE-viewing, RE-considering no matter the planet If its Pluto we RE-view our power, if it’s in Uranus we RE-consider where we want to be free, in Neptune we RE-vise our dreams, with Saturn being retrograde this is a time we REVIEW what has been blocking us, ya know if you didn’t get the lesson on the direct you always get it on the retrograde. With this New Moon being connected to Saturn retrograde we need to review all the ways we have been blocking ourselves from achieving our dreams. Taurus is not a flighty whimsical sign, it’s a ground earth sign that is all about the tangible what we can see with our eyes, touch with our hands; so this New Moon opposite Saturn is saying before you can go forward (Mars) you need to RE-lease all the blocks, limitations, and hardships (Saturn) within yourself (Retrograde) . Keep in mind Saturn is in the sign of Sagittarius; the only thing keeping you away from what you want is your belief! Some say Sagittarius Keywords are “I perceive” Changing your perception may help alter your reality. Sagittarius is naturally a sign of optimism, perhaps this is a period of finding our inner cheerleader where we are most blocked (Saturn).
This occurring on the day Mercury stations in the sign or communication Gemini only reinforcing the idea that we need to review our inner dialog. Go on a journey within this New Moon, clear out old limiting (Saturn) thoughts (Mercury) change your perception (Sagittarius) and then your wishes (New Moon) will become a reality (Taurus)
